Ever wonder how much it costs to buy all the Marvel's Avengers cosmetic items? Here's how much you need to cough up if you're planning to!
The fact it is so large it even has to be 'computed' to begin with is sad.
Reminds of what became of the Dead or Alive series
The computation is very simple for me as it's always 0 regardless of the game.
"It's just cosmetics though" Publishers are getting bigger and greedier. And people have no problem defending them.
No one is making you buy cosmetics. It's not a big deal imo. Now making a game grindy as fuck and selling level boosters on the other hand.... Looking at you Ubisoft
This isn't a ftp game. Games like spider man put this cash grab to shame.
I don't see the problem here. They are cosmetic items. It's a service game. Of course eventually buying all of it will cost a lot of money.
You not seeing the problem is the problem.
I dont like microtransaction. However, if its just cosmetic, i dont mind it. If it was microtransaction that gives you an advantage against other players or required to progress through the game, then its a no no. If its just only cosmetic, then its on the player. Youre not forced to buy these cosmetic items. Sometimes the players have to take responsibility too.
Every single game will soon be a service game.
More like the main game industry will move towards servicing games as a service. At least until becoming wholly unsustainable. Much like how everything moved to service the COD dev model but ultimately exhausted itself.
Every single game will soon be a service game. Aaaaand that’s when I quit gaming 😢
Whenever I’m unable to experience a whole game for a specified amount of money I’m done gaming. The games with infinite economies that are worth $20 at most make no sense to me. I won’t even touch a game designed around getting more and more money out of me
it's a RETAIL game launched at $60
Get over it.
Oh yea no problem either. Just make game with no art and barely any graphics and sell it for 1 dollar, art added as cosmetic dlc for 10k$ Great future
I much rather a retail game charge for optional skins. Rather than have gambling boxes or expensive dlc that splits the playerbase. Remember them days?
Next up. How much it costs to buy all the clothes at a Walmart. Buying all the skins isn't the point. The point is buying what you want and then being done with it. How much does it cost to only buy what you want?
Go to Milan during the multi-billion dollar fashion week and you’ll get a clue of how far fashion can go.
People like yourself and that shitty way of thinking is the issue with gaming these days
This is how gaming dies.
... with thunderous cosmetics.
Gamers need to get smart. Do not support games like this. I didn't buy it but I have made my fair share of purchase mistakes. No more though. As publishers/Developers have gotten more and more like this I am buying less and less.
Look at games like rainbow six Vegas.. And check out all the free cosmetics.. Your are the problem.. You have always been the problem... All the way back to the days of horse armor.
Someone is bored
Calculating the coat of the cosmetic DLC is still more fun than actually playing this game.
But there's a million good games, why'd someone waste their time finding this out? Clearly bored. f2p games are better so there's no reason for anyone to waste their valuable time doing that nonsense lol
Oh well not enough of a community to profit perhaps if they had focused on making a decent game they could profit off these ugly cosmetic trinkets.
I'm torn. On the one hand, gross, $3k in total possible purchases for digital trinkets is pretty nasty. On the other hand, a cosmetic shop is one of choices. It would be like going to a store to buy a shirt, but then giving the owner shit because you tallied up the total possible amount of money you could spend if you bought one of every shirt. You won't do that because not everything appeals to everyone. I think the fact that a digital skin can cost like $20 is absurd regardless of context, though.
Exactly. We're talking about cosmetics. It doesn't matter how many choices they have. As long as the cost per choice is reasonable. If they have thousands of cosmetic items for purchase, I'm sure as hell not buying all of them.
Literally the way things are designed takes some choice away. Fashion is taste and taste is choice being relinquished

Ever remember the day's when you bought the game and then you played until you unlocked all the cool costumes? Your analogy doesn't work . If you had to pay $60 to get have access to the store then it might work.
OK. Then pretend it's Sam's club or Costco. Lol. But seriously, I remember those days. Games were a lot smaller and the amount of costumes were a lot fewer.
Almost as bad as Dead or Alive 6 DLC? Or worse?
do dead or alive next.
DLC cosmetics made after release should be OK. Not sure why everyone here has their panties in a twist.
Because that's what most of the vocal gaming community has become. People trying to find EVERYTHING wrong with all the games and constantly [email protected]*h about the games. Rather than play them and have fun.
Disgusting. Now do it with Assassin's Creed games.
Why add every single item up though? 99.9% of people aren’t going to buy every single cosmetic item available. You buy a few items you like and that’s it.
Why would anyone pay to unlock cosmetic items?
So if all 10 players are whales they gunna buy a new car
I don't see the issue with optional stuff. I bought the game at launch for the story mode and it was fine, I got my money's worth and everything else is there for the people that like that stuff.
